In this exercise students must give peer feedback on each other’s written products. This is facilitated by means of a blog in which the students must submit their assignments. A follow-up conversation with the students about the feedback must also take place online in video meetings in which they will work in groups to clarify the meaning of the written feedback.
The purpose of the exercise is for the students to gain experience of peer feedback while working on their own written products. In the exercise they will relate actively to the content of the course through their fellow-students’ work and to their own products through the feedback they receive from their peers. This will reduce the students’ need for feedback from you as a teacher, as instead they receive guided feedback from each other. The exercise may be used in connection with academic writing and comprehension of assignment genres or in connection with concept clarification and text reading.
